The incoming District Chairman usually receives her chain of office at the end of the AGM in June, ready to start her year on July 1st.
Like so many things in 2020 this wasn't possible!
A decision was made to alter the period of office and so Isabel Sinclair became our District Chairman via a Zoom meeting on December 10th. She will remain in office until June 20th 2022.
That just left the problem of transferring the chain of office, something that can't be achieved virtually!
On Monday December 14th outgoing DC Helen travelled from Altrincham to Buxton and the regalia was handed over on a cushion to make it as covid-safe as possible.
Everyone in District 5 sends congratulations and best wishes to Isabel as she begins her term of office.
